What's going on with your life?

This is the best thread on Mapcore.

I feel for everyone who has lost friends or family due to...all the the things that 2020 was and still is now that we are into 2021. I consider myself lucky that only a small # of my extended family got covid and none of them went to the hospital, but they all said it kicked their asses and are worried about the long term impact to their health.

I am in a different part of SoCal (just outside LA) and home prices here are crazy. We lucked out and bought at the bottom of the last housing crash. Otherwise at the time we would not have been able to afford it. California is awesome...and incredibly frustrating and terribly run all at once. My wife and I talk about moving but everywhere...on the planet...feels like is fucked in one way or another.

As for me, I've actually gotten into better shape during the pandemic. My wife got us to join a gym in 2018 and since dropping that in March 2020 we've (thanks to her) really upped our home exercise game. We have a 3rd empty spot in our garage (why I wanted this house) and now that is a legit workout center with a JKD trapping dummy, TRX system suspended from the heavy bag stand, a Favuke grappling dummy, large gym mat area for both me (grappling/movement drills) and the kids to do tumbling/dance/gymnastics. And lastly, I got really into this rope exercise thing that has helped my upper body so much. A trainer at our old gym got me into it...check it out: https://www.octomoves.com/  (Free EU shipping!)

Lastly, my kids are crazy about Minecraft. It's fun to play with them and my oldest reads all the books and watches the youtubes on how to do all the stuff. She's said to me "When you make a plan in Minecraft, it works out a better. I bet life is like that." Praise Jesus.

So while I was at my grandmother's house last week, she showed me her cassette tape collection.

After that, I ordered my own blank tapes and a recorder and started making my own tapes. And I must say, it's extremely fun! Designing my own labels is cool too!

Narrating my thoughts between songs is something I've always wanted to do anyways! :)

Now if you'll excuse me, I'm off to go record some more!

Fantastic. Haven’t done much in terms of mixtapes cos CDs became popular when I started listening to music, but before that I remember having lot of fun with my sis just spitballing and making shit up like mocking popular ads and injecting naughty words in them 😄
